Our Farmers:

At Macduff 1890, our commitment to delivering the finest quality meat begins with our exceptional network of farmers, primarily sourced from the esteemed Macduff producer group. These Scottish farms have united under a shared vision, establishing an unparalleled standard for beef production that sets Macduff apart in the industry. Our foundation lies in the ethos of natural rearing, where Macduff cattle thrive on a diet exclusively composed of grass and grass-based products, naturally rich in health-boosting omega-3. This dedication to a wholesome diet not only ensures the distinct, full-bodied flavour reminiscent of traditional beef but also upholds our unwavering commitment to ethical and sustainable farming practices.
